Thanks for the insights from both of you. I look forward to listening to all good versions of Comes a Time, as I'm sure many of us do.

This really has nothing to do w/ this song inparticular but it brings up a conversation I heard w/ Pete Townsend.It was at the making of Tommy and Keith could not get the timing down forwhat ever song it was. Goes to prove that the most polished playeres be session or band members just might not get the timing right, and for a profectionist you call in some one who can hurt feelings be damned....LW

Ditto. Really appreciate the insights. (And, Charlie, do dig that up sometime :-) )

I find I'm really drawn to the version on 12/5/71. Much more pared down than the sweet, jazzier versions of 76-77 (though I love those too); to me, 12/5 seems to be all about the soulful vocals and bass line, and when the guitar solo comes in it just sings its little strings out, very plaintively. I like the (apparent) simplicity of that one.
